Expandable Bike Rack Recommendation that Can Fit 1-1/4 inch Hitch When Carrying 2 Bikes


I currently have a 2008 prius that I would like a hitch and platform bike rack for. But, Id like a rack that when used in the future on a class II hitch on another car could be extended to hold 3 or 4 bikes instead of 2. The Yakima holdup works with a 1.25 in receiver, and seems to allow the extension to 4 bikes when used with a 2inch receiver which I could get on a future car, but it says it needs a 2 in receiver. Is there something that can work for 2 bikes on a 1.25 class I hitch, but then be extended to more bikes with purchase of a rack extension when used with a 2inch hitch on a different car?

We have one solution that will work for you. The Pro Series bike rack # PS63138 is an expandable bike rack that when used as a 4 bike rack will fit a 2 inch hitch, and the 2-bike add on is designed to also fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch so it will fit your Prius with a 1-1/4 inch hitch like the # 24808 installed.

Check out the review video I attached for more info on this rack as well.
